Lazy River
Bobby Darin Lyrics

Up a lazy river by the old mill run
Lazy river in the noon day sun
Linger awhile in the shade of a tree
Throw away your troubles, dream with me

Up a lazy river where the robin's song
Wakes the morning, we roll along
Make me blue skies above
Everyone's in love
Up a lazy river, how happy we'll be
Up a lazy river with me

Up a lazy river by the old mill run
That's a lazy, lazy river in the noonday sun
You can linger for a while in the shade of a tree
Throw away your troubles, baby, dream a dream of me

Up a lazy river where the robin's song
Wakes a bright new mornin' where we can roll along
There may be blue skies up above
But, as long as we're in love
Yeah, we'll be up a lazy river how happy we could be
Up a lazy river with me

From the halfway mark

Yeah, up a lazy river where that robin's song
Awakes a bright new mornin', we can roll along
A, a, a, there are blue skies up above
And as long as we're in love
We'll be up a lazy river
Up a crazy, lazy river

Up a lazy river
I ain't goin' your way
Get outta my way
Up a lazy river with me

I loved Mack, Beyond, and Splish Splash. But this was the track where I realized Bobby was next level.


His greatest recording of many great ones. He was the most under-appreciated performer in the last 100 years. He excelled at nearly all genres and was a superb song writer, actor, musician and the ultimate showman.


Simply blows Sinatra away with his wide, wide, repertoire! ... (no contest)
